This Is Humbling

October 25, 2012

In today’s mail:  A certificate and pin from AKC announcing that I have been designated a Breeder of Merit.  It is only right to acknowledge that this would never have come my way if Carolyn Cannon had not entrusted me with the Chaseman, and then co-leased Phoebe with me for a litter, and then co-leased/co-bred Leidy’s litter with me.  Just delivering pretty, healthy puppies is not the whole story — next there are the people who took over the care and custody of the puppies from these two litters.  In addition to loving the stuffings out of them, they tested, trained, and showed.  I think the award belongs to Carolyn, and Alden, and DeAnn, and Anne.  Thank you to each of my friends that has done so much with the puppy you took home.  Big wide smile though:>D

    Well, I believe it! You are a dedicated “mother” of all those pups and your beautiful Chase. And from what I’ve been reading, all those wonderful “issue” are part of your good deeds. Congratulations, Penni.
